    How do you have the tax attributes on that account set?  Merely using the Roth name isn't sufficient.

    There are a variety of ways we may exclude income and expense due to transfers between an account included in a report and an account excluded from a report.  For example, we may exclude the account transfer category: open the report, press Alt + C, select the Categories tab, uncheck the Roth account category. and select OK.
